BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY, as that, being dated, forms the only evidence 

of its currency. 



PRFACE TO 1925-26 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently collected and carefully 
arranged the useful and up-to-date information 
regarding Buteshire — the Officials for the whole county 
and its individual parishes, and Householders and Busi- 
ness people in the more enterprising districts. 

Notwithstanding the continued very high prices, we 

* have striven to maintain our Directory as full as in pre- 

•k) war times, and that without a subsequent commensurate 

^ advance of rates. With the continued support of former 

j patrons, we, with patient industry, will continue in the 

way of well-doing. 



t

<=n 



As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
i distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we, with prompt receipt of orders, will 
keep permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 



i 

2" ' agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
" that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 

all interests have a good show, and everything brought 

thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 

International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 

__ and in our spare pages we gave glimpses of our propa- 

<5-> ganda. Esperanto has been seriously studied and adopted 

pjj^ lay scientific, business and educational societies throughout 

J~^ the world. Music and sport were early in the field. It is 

ss§ .'■'' the language of radio, and is being broadcast everywhere 

— making for international peace, good-will and harmony.] 



Those who wish Lists of Householders arranged in 
Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

This useful handbook of useful local information is again issued--for season 1924-

—Buteman, 5/9/24. 

The new edition of the Bute County Directory for 1924-25, published by Messrs 
Higgie & Co., Rothesay, maintains the reputation of the publication as a comprehen- 
sive record of activities and information of interest to the county. The directory 
comprises county and burghal information, lists of public officials and society office- 
bearers, agricultural and fishery statistics, and householders and traders. The calen- 
dar, with anniversaries for each date, is in reality a compact history of the county. —

As far as we can see, the information about Millport and Cumbrae is quite cor- 
rect and thoroughly reliable, so we may take it for granted that the rest of the matter 
is the same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport News, 4/9/24. 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers have been so enter 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. It should be 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac. — Ardrossan H*rald, 5/9/24.

LONG LIVE THE BUTE DIRECTORY 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

art as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News" makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride. 
Instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

IS ESPERANTO WORTH LEARNING? 

It is the Language of the Cosmopolitan Red Cross Society, 

is More Scientific, Easily Learned, Up-to-Date, and Useful than 

any National Language : it is an Auxiliary to each and all. 

It is adopted by Scientific, Business and Educational Societies. 

Music and Sport early saw its potentialities, and ; by it, songs, 

addreses, etc., are broadcast by wireless everywhere. 



BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



The forty fourth edition of this useful hand-book has just been published, and 
is brimful of information regarding the County of Bute. The public officials, lists of 
householders and business people in this popular health resort will be most serviceable

*We heartily thank our Helensburgh friend*. They themsehes also publish a use- 
ful directory for their town and environs, and they know what they are speaking about 
Recently they said our publication was " a marvel of cheapness." Well, our pre-war 
price was only Is. Our secret is, because our pre-war vigour remains : long may it 
have cause to continue ! The directory is the only one provided with a loop for hang- 
ing in an open convenient place for reference, and not hid away in a desk or drawer — 
sometimes even in a safe (!) Our advertising friends will be. pleased to learn that our 
free list is increasing. " Sweet are the uses of advertisement!" [If we raised the 
price of our directory to 4s or 5s it would still sell, but the circulation would be very

COUNTY OF BUTE. 

rpHE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz. 
X — Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrsmre Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnook, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothksay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14.151 ; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2'1 per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows :--- 

Males. Females. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 

Cumbrae - - - 704 992 

•The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping. 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62—601. 
The population at the postponed 1921 census [taken in June instead of April] for the

Parish of North Bute. 

THIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family— two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King- 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the 1921 census,-(taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 120i 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730.

SHORTHAND, 

TYPEWRITING, 

ESPERANTO, - 

BOOK-KEEPING. 



MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOE PRACTICAL INSTRU C 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 

SllOPthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. ' 

EspeP&n.tO. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
1 — notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
t great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
io peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
no friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and fri^htfulness loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good- will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrifies, much 
tervice and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-Keeping 1 . — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutis have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

SPELING REFORM 



THIS IS NOT A NEW DESIRE ; BUT BESPEAKS 
A GREATLY INCREASED INTEREST IN A 
VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT AT THE PRESENT 
TIME. Under the appropriate heading, 

"A Wasted Year," 

there appeared, on 3rd May, 1924, a Special Article in the 
Evening Citizen, Glasgow, showing that this is the time lost 
in the life of every child in Britain while acquiring the ir- 
regular and inconsistent spelling of our language. 

The Simplified Speling Society is promoting a 
petition to present to the Prime Minister, calling for the 
appointment of a Royal Commission — including Scholars, 
Teachers, Men of Letters and Men of Business — to consider 
the whole question, and report. 

Experiments already made by enthusiasts have proved 
eminently satisfactory, and shows how much valuable time 
will be saved for other studies by the removal of the speling 
incubus. 

The Speling Reformers include all classes of the people, 
and the question is not a party one. 

The Simplified Speling Society of Great Britain, and 
the Speling Reform Association of U. S. A., have issued 
the first number of a joint quarterly journal, " Speling." 

Shorthand could not be written without a Reformed and Phonetic Alphabet. 



Parish of Kingarth. 

THIS parish is rich in ecclesiastical history. The Irish Bishop, St Cattan, landed 
here in the year 439. He was uncle of the famous St Blane. The parish includes 
the popular village of Kilchattan Bay, which is about seven miles from Rothesay, and 
hiss regular connection by steamer and 'bus. The population in 1891 was 1062 ; in

The Isle of Arran. 

r r , HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
J. the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
od the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday ill the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

CHAR M of the HEA THER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing J°y Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolhesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers. The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter or parcel rates.

OTHER TRIUMPHS FOR 

ESPERANTO. 



a Jara KONGRESO, EDINBURGO, 1926, 



THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION some years 
ago appointed a Committee to enquire into 
the practicability of an International Auxiliary 
Language. The committee published an interim 
report in 192 1 recording its conclusions that an 

AUXILIARY INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE 

is practicable, that Latin and Existing National 
Languages are unsuitable, and that an "Artificial' 
or Synthetic Language is best. 

Since that date the Committee have further 
considered the matter, and have now finally decided 
to recommend the Adoption of Esperanto. 

Realm of R a d i 0. 

At an International Radio Conference, 
held in Paris from 14th till 18th April, 1025, 
Esperanto was adopted as the hand-maiien 
of Radio throughout the whole world. It is now 
broadcast everywhere. 

Instruction, by well-known teachers, is regularly 
broadcast in both Hemispheres.

oj Typical letter received in pre-war days :— 

g Montreal, July £9th, 1913. 

'g "I was shown a copy of your publication, 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts,' 

s* while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest- 
ing books ; so realistically depicting places I have visited, and 'brither 

a Scots.' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country or 

.2 U.S. A , and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 

t| get a few of your small books— so full of interest to the fellow Scot men 

.» I come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me their co py 

2 had it for years I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue othe r 
a Pub.ications along the same lines as the ABC' Resorts of Scotland.' " 
£ Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. 

£ We are now preparing a post-war edition. 

o 

so These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 

•S Scottieh connection, and we sent (free and direct) from our head 

g office, in Kothesay, copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, &o., 

"g to the Red Cross Hospitals in Scotland, 

o 

ja giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldi rs who had been 

*> fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 

£ Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 

g One never knows the go>d received in unexpected quarters. A 
.o Scottish soldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, "swapped" 
'£ something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's Short- 
en hand. He learned the arr, introduced it into the British Army, 
° and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the inventor's centen- 
_a ary -when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Jlothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but thu 
eontinuingof everyth ng as full as possible.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (an 1 prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual" reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 

Price to Subscribers, Two Shillings; to Non-Subscribers, 
Three Shillings. Postage, Threepence.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



The Commercial Library, 21 Millar Street, 
18th July, 19 18. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the'use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one -third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yonrs faithfully, 

Jno Phillifs, Libraiian. 



This Directory came out regularly during the'stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time ol industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we hope we shall win success. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 



The "ca' canny" and similar anti-British tactics are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperit y. Unless there is a determined rivival of Industry, what must 
the harvest be? It is not through the guile and covetous selfishtiess of the wicked 
and thoughtless, but through righteous Regeneration that peace and prosperity 
will be regained. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as well as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
tip in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Higgle & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jokes. 
♦Districts included in The Coast Guidb. 
The above shows the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not engoying to 

the full because of the " ca' canny " policy and the charm of living"of the rates. 
The callous numbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is ruinous. 
Charity is a splendid virtue, but it should not not be allowed to encourage pauperism.

Esperanto, like English, is made, up from oiher languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh ia 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the llaTuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, in 1 920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921 ; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finnland, in 1922 ; the 15th at 
Niirnberg in 1923, the 16th at Vienna in 1924, the 17th at Geneva this August, and 
the 18th will be held in Edinburgh next year, when Bonnie Scotland will have an 
opportunity of showing her appreciation. 

Esperanto—the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It was used at the great international Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the sinning, of 
Auld Langsyne. This year there are numerous international excursions. The Scots 
boy scouts have caught on. During the holidays a company sojourned in Norway 
and a company of Danes enjoyed the hospitality of Scotland, That is nothing com- 
pari- ! with the achievements elsewhere. " We're a' John Tamson's bairns." 

Esperanto is muidi more easily learned than the alphabets of some other languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pie-emlnehtly pit) bono publico, it is peculiarly fitted for cementing and malting per- 
manent and lappy the coming efficiency of the League of Nations. That organisa- 
tion has unanimously recommended the official and universal adoption of Espenanto, 
and its teaching ia the schools of all civilised countries. 1925.
